Eco-friendly Table Decor for Your Engagement Party

Eco-friendly table decorations

The idea is simple. Plan an engagement party without contributing to another carbon footprint on the planet. How? Get creative and put together table elements that have an eco-friendly style and a high chic factor—yet are easy on the budget.

A tall order, you say? Well, we’ve assembled three unique table décor ideas—either handcrafted or using elements from nature—to bring an Earth-loving spin to even the most stylish of parties. They offer some pretty clever ways to use unexpected elements, from napkin rings to condiment trays to drink coasters. So, c’mon, it’s time to go eco-cheap-chic!

Use Napkin Rings That are “Natural” Creations

Thank your lucky stars—star anise, that is—for these whimsical napkin accents! Yes, this distinct star-shaped spice tops a raffia-covered napkin ring decorated with pistachio shells. You can get an equally charming effect with napkin rings embellished with colorful seeds, old buttons, or pasta shells.

Set Out Shell-Trimmed Table Accessories

If your table calls for a stylish nautical flair, trim condiment or appetizer trays with fragments of real shells! See how this adds a special touch to our egg salad-filled tomatoes, topped with parsley. You could spruce up the presentation further with a fruit garnish, such as a slice of lime or lemon, on the side. Then, arrange these appetizers on the table, paired with pretty cocktail forks. Hint: These petite trays can also be used to hold condiments such as sea salt, freshly-ground pepper, sachets of sugar, soy sauce packets, or a favorite spice.

Provide Glass Coasters Made from Unexpected Recyclables

How neat is that? Yes, those are pieces of used wine corks recycled to create glass coasters. Eco-friendly, virtually cost-free, and actually DIY-able! And they look great, too. Hint: Spare the planet from discarded non-biodegradables. You can use styrofoam “chips” to create glass coasters, too.
